(Gainesville, Ga.) – Apple released a statement about a new car they are designing. There is a lot of speculation about this project, but not enough information has been given out to the public, as the design of the car is still in progress. Titled “Project Titan”, the new car is said to be fully electric. Apple hopes for its release to be in 2019.
Many critics are bashing the idea of Apple adding a car to their long line of products, which includes computers, cell phones and tablets. Most of the criticism targets Apple because of their lack of any previous experience with the car industry.
Cars are expensive to make, and expensive to buy. If Apple spends several millions of dollars on creating a car they may have problems making a profit in the long run. There are many car manufacturers in the United States and around the world, so Apple will have a lot of competition on the market.
Other companies have been creating and perfecting their models of electric cars which will compete with Apple cars. The Nissan Leaf, for example, has been on the market since 2010. It has won several awards including the 2010 Green Car Vision Award, 2011 European Car of the Year, 2011 World Car of the Year, and the 2011–2012 Car of the Year Japan.
When the new car does hit the roads in 2019, it will likely have the innovative technology that Apple is known for in all of their products. In addition to being solely battery powered, it could possibly have “Siri” built in to assist us in driving. The possibilities are endless.
